As a follow-up to the Arctic Council Framework Plan for Oil Pollution Prevention (2015), the Arctic Council Working Group Emergency Prevention, Preparedness and Response (EPPR) identified the need for a common approach to marine risk assessments in the Arctic region. The Guideline aims to engage Arctic stakeholders to agree on best practice methods and data sources, and make these readily available, and to better understand, communicate and incorporate specific Arctic risk influencing factors (ARIFs) into the risk assessment process.
